Positive Reviews

Kind and responsive staff.

Those who stayed said the staff proved to be kind, friendly and responsive to issues raised, while some appreciated having doughnuts and bread available in the morning as part of a continental breakfast.

Old-style motel with pool.

The Mountaineer Inn's retro motel style won it a few fans, with many more noting that it could be quite nice with some renovations, and the outdoor pool was a bonus to some.

Convenient Asheville location.

Some guests said that the inn had a good location for accessing Asheville's attractions, including the downtown Asheville, local restaurants nearby and the Asheville mall.

Negative Reviews

In need of repairs and renovation.

The Mountaineer Inn was found to be very much in need of repairing and renovation, with damage to room fittings, things like the air conditioning and TV remotes sometimes not working, and a generally dated feel to the premises.

Standards of cleanliness not always high.

While some people found their rooms to be rather clean, many found the standards of cleanliness to be much too low for their liking, or perhaps it seemed that way due to age and things like stains in the carpet.

Wi-Fi not working, some dodgy guests.

Guests occasionally mentioned that the free Wi-Fi did not work in their rooms, and said that there were sometimes some very questionable-looking guests frequenting the hotel.
